A GPL Win in Michigan - DrewTech v. SAE  View Printable Version 
Monday, March 21 2005 @ 05:37 pm CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsFrom Groklaw:

You know how in almost every FUD article about the GPL, they always say that the GPL has never been tested in a US court?

That isn't actually true. There have been cases where it played a role and the judges took it seriously even if they didn't directly rule on it. Now there is a case in Michigan, which just settled, where the GPL not only stood its ground, it came off victorious, and this time it was very much a part of the case. I had a chance to interview the attorney that represented the GPL side, Eric Grimm.

The case involved software written in part by Drew Technologies, Inc., to which others contributed, in reliance upon the GPL. DrewTech, an engineering firm in Michigan, develops custom vehicle communications solutions for the automobile industry. DrewTech released the software at issue on SourceForge, under the GNU General Public License ("GPL").

Asterisk - a star of the future?  View Printable Version 
Friday, March 18 2005 @ 07:35 am CST

General NewsFrom The Register:

Larry Ellison has his super yacht, Bill Gates has his humanitarian fund. For Mark Spencer, the symbol of his success is a hot tub.

It may not be the most expensive trophy, but Spencer’s achievement may well prove to be just as revolutionary - turning the world of enterprise telephony on its head.

The tub, now installed at his Huntsville, Alabama home, was bought for him as a token of gratitude by 150 software developers who work on the platform he initiated - Asterisk, the Linux-based IP private branch exchange (PBX) software.

General NewsFrom LXer:

Racks and racks of Linux computers ramble along the aisles at AOL. In fact, the SGI and Sun metal have all gone away, replaced with commodity Intel systems running Linux and Apache. But when I ask a high ranking executive if we can have a Linux AOL client - well you know the answer.

Installing and Securing VOIP with Linux  View Printable Version 
Monday, February 07 2005 @ 06:43 am CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsFrom SoftWink:

Successful businesses usually have the same goal, minimize costs to maximize profits. Today with the plethora of open source solutions, a small business can present a high tech image and still keep a lid on the expenses. Early last winter, we had the opportunity to present a proposal for a financial institution to add two new remote offices. The requirement was to find a low cost solution for both the voice and data connections between all bank branches and provide a seamless integrated phone system with branch to branch dialing by extension, voice mail and conference calling. Although the new branches were only a short distance from the bank's main office, 27 miles and 49 miles respectively, dedicated leased lines were expensive because each office was located in separate rural area and each area was controlled by a different telco. Quotes from several carriers to provide enough bandwidth for both voice and data between the new branches and the main office would cost a minimum of $2,500 per month per branch. Coupled with expensive router equipment, phone equipment not to mention computer workstations and servers was going to really push the ceiling on the budget requirements for the new offices.

OpenOffice.org database application: A first look review  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, January 25 2005 @ 10:52 pm CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsFrom Newsforge:

Soon OpenOffice.org will introduce a database application to its office suite. For the last couple of years, OpenOffice.org has been developing its word processor, spreadsheet, and presentation manager programs to compete head-to-head with similar software products such as MS Office, Koffice, and Textmaker. The upcoming Version 2.0 rounds out the offering and adds the ability to create standalone databases, associated forms, reports, and queries much like MS Access. According to the documentation it's called OpenOffice.org Base.

This story will discuss the OpenOffice.org Base and how it can be used in your business. I'll touch on the similarities (plus differences) with the OpenOffice.org database program and Access. I'll continue with a little commentary on migration issues. We'll finish up by building a basic contact database, a form, a query, and a report using the wizards. If you are already an OpenOffice.org believer, you can just skip down to the "build a quick database application" section to see how it works.

Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsFrom Newsforge:

When Sun's Scott McNealy told us that Red Hat had the Linux market, we decided it might be a good idea to find out what Novell and Mandrakesoft had to say about that. We exchanged email with Mandrakesoft CEO François Bancilhon and Novell's director of product management and marketing, Charlie Ungashick, on the subject of Solaris 10, Red Hat, and how they compete in a consolidating market.
